The variation in Marriott concierge lounges is HUGE!. The lounge at the Hong Kong Marriott is wonderful! They offer a full bar, beautiful buffet breakfast and gourmet dishes in the evening. Another great one is the Heidelberg Marriott. Most lounges in the US are now overcrowded and offer very poor food choices. Alcohol is usually included outside the US but is never free in the US. What accounts for these extreme differences? Why isn't there any Marriott standard? You never know whether to expect a meal or a few potato chips.
